>> bill: continuing with is it legal. johnny michael span was killed in afghanistan by the taliban. participating in that action was an american. john walker lind who pleaded guilty in 2002 and sentenced to 20 years in prison for aiding the taliban. he is serving the sentence in terre haute, indiana. it is there that lind and other muslim convicts filed the lawsuit. with us is lis wiehl and kimberly guilfoyle. the lawsuit said what. >> simple. inmates within this correctional facility that has high risk security inmates such as john walker lind. and they were able to pray in a prayer group on a daily basis. he was precluded from doing so because they considered it to be a security risk. he is high profile and he engenders a lot of support from the inmates and tastes being held there it is well known by u.s. intelligence sources and people that study and work on these cases of terrorism that that is a means by which they congregate and
1:25am
spread. >> bill: lind and others filed a lawsuit, wiehl demanding what? >> that they can pray together every day. >> bill: pray together every day? islam i understand and we researched this today. there is no tenant that you have to pray together. >> support praying together. >> bill: good like going to mass for the catholics. it's good but if you go to mass by yourself. >> still okay. >> bill: you don't have to go with 15 people. same in islam. you don't have to pray with 15 people. >> bill: they were claiming their rights were being violated. >> religious freedom rights. >> bill: by keeping them segregated. >> at least this initial judge said, yes, that's right is it right? >> no, it's not right. >> judge from the southern district of indiana there is a 1993 law in the united states which precludes curtailing religious freedom and activity. >> security risk didn't have to go ahead and authorize it. >> this judge we just saw she
1:26am
made a mistake in your opinion. >> definitely made a misstangeght the government should appeal to the eighth district. >> we don't know whether they will appeal or not. >> just to recap. they don't want lind and the other muslims to get together aunt guise of prayer and hatch some plots. >> exactly. very real concern. >> bill: norfolk, virginia you may remember the two reporters for the newspaper there were beat up by a whole bunch of people pulled out of their car and there was a 911 call about it. woman being beaten by the mob. called 911. they won't give it to the factor. state of commonwealth virginia won't release it, period. but they did release norfolk, virginia did release this 911 call, go. >> norfolk, 911, where is your emergency. >> i'm driving down the street right before the view.
1:27am
>> bill: we have a picture of the baby lion? can you throw the baby lion up there now so we know what we are talking about? i hope can you. was there a baby lion? >> it was not actually a baby lion it was a baby dog. that looked like a baby lion. >> bill: there he is. that looks like a puppy. >> that was a labradoodle named charles. >> that's a real dog, right? >> he groomed like that. charles the monarch to look like a lion. this is a dog out for a walk that looks like a lion they call 911 and norfolk police solve the case. >> a they solve the case and b within two days these 911 calls were released. >> bill: okay. so, guilfoyle, your conclusion based upon the norfolk police refusing to release -- all right. we have had enough of the lion. >> this is distracting and funny and cute and takes attention away from the fact that they botched the other investigation and there was no media attention for two weeks for withholding that and they
1:28am
shouldn't. >> bill: no way to withhold it case is over. >> they changed twice. first of all when the factor called and said look can we get it? no. now they are saying the case is not over. it's over. >> bill: it's over. one guy got a demeanor wrap. >> 17-year-old pled guilty. >> bill: he almost beat these two people. they had to go to the hospital we know the fix is in. >> absolutely. no legal justification not to. >> bill: you are absolutely right. it was botched. we're glad the lion is okay. remember the song the lion sleeps tonight in the jungle. >> no. >> i will sing it after the program. but not now. plenty more ahead as the factor moves along this evening. will president obama succeed in destroying the republican party? charles krauthammer has some thoughts on that. john stossel on what the president is likely to do about guns. we hope you stay tuned to those reports.
1:29am
1:30am
1:31am
1:32am
>> bill: report from the web site politico says president obama may issue as many as 19 executive orders on the gun situation. tomorrow morning the president will tell us what he wants to do. >> there are specific legislative actions that he will will continue to call on congress to take, including the assault weapons ban, including a measure to ban high capacity magazine clips. including an effort to close the very big loophole and the
1:33am
background check system in our country. >> bill: maybe if you shot a pistol in the air, carney would liven up a little bit. here is john stossel of the fox business channel. if he would get a little more energy. what the press spokesperson for barack obama did say there was that the president is not going to do anything tomorrow. that is he going to leave all the heavy stuff, the semiautomatic weapons to congress, the magazine clips to congress and what is he likely to do is interview craft particular stuff. >> which is kind of a relief. this executive order idea can be really abused and i was afraid. i have the right to ban everything. >> bill: but he doesn't. under the constitution it's a constitutional question. he knows it would be knocked down very quickly the house wouldn't pass and number of democrats wouldn't pass. >> it wouldn't be knocked down very quickly. nothing gets down very quickly. >> bill: federal court put a spray stossel, he comes on this program because he knows that i'm always right.
1:34am
let me ask you. this. >> what looking what prior president has done. locked up 10,000 japanese americans. >> nixon did that he slapped on -- jfk did the detour executive order. >> i'm not criticizing barack obama for the use of the executive order. i mean, you know, they all do and it sometimes the president believes that he should. that's in our system. have you ever been to chicago, stossel? >> i grew up in chicago. >> i didn't know that outside of chicago. chicago had more gun killings in 2012 than coalition forces were killed in afghanistan. did you know that? >> did i not. >> i just found that out dead. more dead by gun violence in chicago than afghanistan. >> they have very tough gun laws. >> banned them. the city of chicago you can't have a handgun. this should tell president obama this kind of banning business what he wants to do is not going to work. >> nothing tells the left that banning won't work.
1:35am
no they can't. people don't get it congress must do something. but the cdc looked at 51 studies of gun laws. they are looking to find some that worked. they couldn't find anything. >> centers for disease controls, right, in atlanta, studied this, if there was anything gun law that helped reduce gun violence and they came up with? >> nothing. >> zero. it's all a mixed bag. if you ban things the bad guys know. >> bill: 300 million guns on the streets of america right now. the bad guys are going to find them, ookay? that's the tway. >> makes no difference. other countries, too. >> bill: i favor though background checks and the government knowing who has an ar. i think that's just sane. you oppose? >> i don't know where to draw the line. the government messes up the background checks. they leave people's names out. you say ar. how about another kind of gun. >> i say just a semiautomatic rifles. the ones with the big clips. i think they got to register.
1:36am
>> am i reasonable? >> it seems reasonable to me to ban the big clips, too. it's just a anyone can make one. >> the background checks might. the government collecting this information. >> it's not going to stop another new town shooting. >> doesn't mean you can do this. when we come right back, will president obama succeed in damaging the republican party so much lose the house in 2014. charles krauthammer on that moments away.
1:37am
1:38am
1:39am
1:40am
>> bill: thanks for staying with us. i'm bill o'reilly in the impact segment tonight, as we have been telling you, it looks like president obama is setting up the republican party for a very hard fall on both gun control and the debt ceiling. the president simply will not offer any compromise on federal spending that might get a debt deal done. on guns as we just heard, is he threatening executive orders. so i think the president simply wants to damage the republicans rather than solve complicated problems, at least at this juncture. joining us from washington with his take fox news political analyst charles krauthammer. i see it as a chess game. rather than both parties working together to get some gun legislation that might
1:41am
help folks control criminals in that area and rather than getting the debt ceiling done with some, you know, meaningful cuts in spending, the president says, you know, i'm not even going to bother. i want to alienate the republicans so that people will be angry with them. am i wrong? he has been doing that since elections day, i wrote a column ever since september pointing out entire strategy for the fiscal cliff was to split the republicans. it had nothing to do his offers had nothing to do with solving the fiscal issue or solving the debt. he showed nothing to solve the debt since he was elected in 2008. he appoints a commission two years later and ignored it he has never talked about any structure turley cuts in entitle wants. he has no interest in that. he wants the entitlement state. if you want a european style entitlement state you need european style taxation. that's all he is interested in. but his strategy with fiscal
1:42am
cliff as is his strategy wonderful the debt ceiling is to split fracture and therefore neuter republicans in the house because that is all that stands between him and total dominance of washington in his second term. he wants a return to 2009-2010 when he had control of both houses he had a super majority in the senate. huge majority in the house. and revolutionized healthcare and passed the biggest spending bill the stimulus in galactic history. that's what he wants. the only way to do it is to do what he is doing and it already worked with the fiscal cliff fractured the republicans. who was in charge of the last vote? nancy pelosi, the democrats. she got 9 out of 10 to go with her. a few republicans. she controlled the agenda. that's his strategy. >> bill: it's working. and i don't know whether it's going to work down the road but he has two huge things
1:43am
going for him. the media behind him, all right. so think are going to support what he does generally speaking on the networks news level in the major urban newspapers and wire services like the associated press. he has got all of that favorable push. then he has got a lack of anybody in the republican party who can stand up to him. eye to eye, man to man, and say you are ruining the country, mr. president. it's the leadership, look, you might like john boehner, most americans don't know who he is. all right? marco rubio will be on this program tomorrow. a rising star. but doesn't have nearly the status of president obama or the bully pulpit and the press certainly not going to give rubio a break. everything is going the pet's way. i think that's how he feels. that he has got the momentum and he is going to squash the republicans now once and for all during his term. look i think you are right in identifying the two factors. there is one fundamental difference between those two factors, the media, the press, the intellectuals, academia,
1:44am
hollywood, they are always left. they always were. they always will be. that's the sunrising in the east. you have got to live with it despite that we erected a reagan and bush and then a second bush. but the other factor is not constant that's where i think you have got it wrong. you were arguing earlier in the show there was some kind of structural change in the country liberals have a that is simply a function of the fact that the democrats have just won the presidential election. when i look where the democrats were in 2000. when they lost, they had no leadership. who was going to lead the party after the gore defeat? in 2004, who was leader of the party? nobody even heard of barack obama? what you have is a changing country. >> whenever a party loses a presidential election i understand that but what i think you are overlooking is countries change in 12 years.
1:45am
the minority vote is much more substantial. the younger americans are not engaged. they don't really pay attention. and they are going on whim and they are going on trend. the media is much more rabidly pro-left now than it was. three things have changed. and i agree whenever a party wins, they're going to take some momentum into the next year. i think it's changed america now. >> i think you are wrong. every time a party loses you get a book coming out saying the permanent republican majority. the permanent liberal majority. nothing in the country is permanent. what's important to remember is this republicans republicansn a beating. liberalism i think we would agree, which is all tax and all spend will not work he or she stein once said if something can't go on it won't go on it will stop. it all stopped in europe. you can only go on spending, racking up the debt and at one point the merry go round
1:46am
stops. it's going to stop for the united states. you cannot have trillion-dollar deficits every year. >> the pain is going to be unbelievable. >> if liberalism does not work and it doesn't, it will be rejected. and the conservatives will find their leader. they always do. >> bill: i'm not disagreeing that will happen down the road but i don't want a catastrophe before it happens. and i think that's where we are headed. >> i agree with you on that. >> would've. charles thank you. in a moment al qaeda tries to take over a country in africa and the french are trying to stop it will the u.s.a. join the fight. factor tip of the day, do not fool around with mother nature. we're coming right back.
1:47am
1:48am
1:49am
>> bill: back of the book segment tonight. the african country mali a is back water.
1:50am
poor perfect place for al qaeda to take root. now it seems that islamic militants may seize control of mali. standing in the way the french who controlled the country at one time. french armed forces are fighting al qaeda but the u.s.a. is standing back. >> there is no consideration of putting american boots on the ground at this time. we have commended the french for this effort to try to go into mali. >> joining now to analyze colonel david hunt in boston and lieutenant ravel peters in washington. should americans care about this. >> absolutely. while we bogged ourselves down in average teaching hygiene methods to afghan villagers al qaeda has been spreading around the world. bill, nowhere have they had more success than in mali. they now control an area larger than the state of texas. and the french god bless them
1:51am
they are doing the right thick. the french army is a shadow. can't do it without transport aircraft. communications. >> bill: you would assume that's happening. >> it is. owe he bama administration is not helping the french out. >> it's much closer close europ. that's why the europeans are so worried. the only good news, bill. is the al qaeda guys in northern mali. they have so alienated the local population with their horrific sharia law -- >> banned music, et cetera. the locals hate them but they have no power. >> bill: okay. same situation, colonel hunt, al qaeda looking for a base, just like they had in afghanistan just before 9/11. they want a country they can train. where they can arm. where they can coalesce. people can come there. that's what they are up to in mali, correct? >> yeah. we have been special forces.
1:52am
training, mali special forces and as ralph said. we are there helping to communicate logistics. it's only one step away. the french cannot do this an area that large without our help. have too do what we can to knock out this al qaeda movement in this country. >> absolutely. colonel hunt. recent report by nato itself says that the surge, so-called surge under the obama administration in afghanistan has not worked. now we are talking about leaving fairly soon but the taliban are still strong i believe the report? >> it was produced by the command in afghanistan it trass three or four backs. what happened since the surge is acted increase and all the measurements that were used in
1:53am
this report. and so great marines fought. army special forces. everything fought hard. it just didn't work. >> bill: you are a vietnam vet. >> yeah. >> bill: were you in vietnam colonel peters. >> no, i was a little too young but i wish i had been. >> bill: hunt looks a lot older than you i'm sorry to make that mistake. colonel was in vietnam. it's the same thing we had a corrupt south vietnam me regime. didn't work. didn't win the people's loyalty. that's what we are looking at in afghanistan colonel peters. the same thing. the afghani people. they are afraid of the taliban. they are saying, you know, karzai and those people, are they going to protect us? the answer is no. so that they are not really throw throwing in with the u.s. and the coalition forces. >> you have hit the nail right on the head to use yet another cliche. the fundamental difference
1:54am
between the afghan forces that we spent over a decade. rag bag taliban is at that time taliban believe in what they are fighting for. they are fighting for their faith and for all sorts of other reasons too. primarily on a jihad. we expect the afghan army and police to fight for harmid karzai. >> it's not that simple though. the taliban is so brutal and the afghan people don't like them. maybe you fight against the taliban rather than for karzai. i will give colonel hunt the last word on it? >> you can the problem is insurgency. 7 to 10 years to fight. this hasn't been fought well. not just a political disaster for obama. a military because many of our four star generals did not know what they were doing. the report produced by our own military shows it didn't work and it's more than time to go because we are spending so many billions -- we also lost 988 guys since the thing
1:55am
started. since the start. >> bill: not good news in afghanistan. we hope the french can handle the al qaeda in mali. on democrat, factor tip of the day. do not, do not fool around with mother nature. wait until you see this video. the tip 60 seconds away.
1:56am
>> back tore tip >> back for the tip of the day. the interview with the corporal hammar. mr. o'reilly sometimes i'm critical of you. i believe without your intervention corporal hammar would still be sitting in that mexican prison. i will never set foot in mexico again. and kudos to the corporal for his grace during the interview. and americans would otherwise be powersless time and time
1:57am
again, regardless. thank you for the kind words. big thanks to the brilliant cartoonist bruce kinsley who illustrates one fiphilmore and mentioning the cartoon yesterday. and the complete interview with corporal hammar is posted on billoreilly.com. and come on, al gore is being a capitalist, i thought you were a big supporter of capitalism. please give it a rest. you can make money the old-fashioned way, henry, with honesty and honor, wise up. from smyrna, georgia. the tell me he does care about global warming as long as he can make money from it. and surprise, arizona, my husband surprised me with tickets to see you and miller in phoenix on february 22nd. i'm thrilled. surprised in surprise, and see you at the theater.
